Even being ill hasn’t stopped the drawing. Sorry, not sorry. Thought I’d better schedule this one up while my head is relatively clear.
Day seven’s theme is enchanted – and my mind went straight to a magic wand. This is both enchanted and a tool of enchantment, with a winding sinuous shape reminiscent of a snake. Depending on your iconology this can represent healing or knowledge or deception. The gems act as both focus and repository of power – as well as flashes of colour to make the image pop.
Day eight’s prompt is “Frail” so after some deliberation I went with a spider web. To you or I it is like gossamer, barely noticed, even as it acts as a deadly barrier and trap for small insects. I had in mind an allegory of how we can be both strong and frail depending on what comes at us – and how we reckon it scales in comparison to our strengths.
